6:03 pm
one pound of heroin and this was a two-year investigation that ended with a search warrant of a home in east san jose. investigators are not ruling out the possibility that this operation has ties to mexico and the meth apparently was high pure quality. more than 90%. and was ready to hit the streets. this is a major distribution operation that has been shut down. >> so it's obviously a huge amount of money. i don't think we've ever seized $825,000 worth of cash. also if you look at the amount of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin here, it's a huge seizure. >> reporter: and this investigation is clearly not over. the primary suspect still out there, his name is jose jimenez, 22 years old and it was at his home that this bust took place. live in san jose, nbc bay area news. >> george, thank you. to the east ba a hayward police officer resigned today after he was booked into jail on charges of extortion. officer romeo aberin was arrested after the department says a woman came forward saying
6:04 pm
he questioned her about possible forged prescriptions and then instead of arresting her, he demanded money. the police chief says her department as a zero tolerance policy for corruption. >> i'm hoping by conducting this press conference as well if there are additional victims that they will reach out to the police department so we may comprehensively investigate that as well. that's why we're being very public about this as well. is to make sure that there haven't been any additional victims. >> chief urban says the hiring process has grown more rigorous in the two years since she's become chief and background checks for new officer are more comprehensive. federal government not the nonl thing in the midst of a shutdown. pg&e was ordered to shut down a pipeline under a stretch of san carlos. the city says the pipeline is putting the community at risk of an explosion like the very one that devastated the city of san bruno back in 2010. nbc bay area's kris sanchez joins us live, at san carlos, what the city wants and so far all pg&e has done is reduce the
6:05 pm
pressure on that line. >> reporter: they're calling it a shutdown, jess. the city wants some certainty. they say that, rather pg&e says the line that runs underneath where i'm standing for four miles between highway 101 and 280 is safe. the city says according to pg&e's own documents, they can't possibly say that's true. on the surface, it's a normal monday afternoon in san carlos. underground, a catastrophe may be brewing. the city of san carlos got a san mateo county judge to order pg&e to temporarily shut down line 147. it's a gas line which the utility tested with hydropressure in 2011 which then sprang a leak a year later. when that happened, pg&e engineer wrote an e-mail asking your are we sitting on another san bruno?" >> good pitch. >> reporter: looking out at his players, coach mike doyle hopes the city presses for answers. >> if there's a risk given what happened in san bruno, you know, i fully support them doing the
6:06 pm
testing. >> reporter: the city of san carlos declared a state of emergency to get the utility to deactivate the line above which 3,000 to 5,000 people live. pg&e is complying with the court order but disagrees with the claim that line 147 is unsafe. >> line 147 is absolutely safe. if the pipeline had not been operating safely, it would not have been operating, period. >> the city feels based on pg&e's own information that pg&e ought not be making that statement. that they just don't know. >> reporter: the city cites a discrepancy between the kind of well found near the site of the leak in 2012 and the kind of wells listed in pg&e records. >> they don't know what all the material that comprises line 147 is made out of. they don't know the age of all the material or where it came from in line 147. >> reporter: the pg&e spokeswoman says the utility is trying to rebuild trust three years after the san bruno blast but at least in san carlos, it
6:07 pm
doesn't seem to be wonking. >> the perception in san kor los, we don't know if we're safe now. until we do, we want to see line 147 kept shutdown. >> reporter: to begin, the city is maintaining a state of emergency for itself. and they are negotiating back and forth with pg&e. the judge set a hearing date for october 23rd. by the way, in the meantime, none of the folks in this area are having any service disruptions because while 147, that line is shut down, there are other description lines that are getting the gas where it needs to be. in san carlos, kris sanchez, nbc bay area use. >> kris, thank you. a suspect in a downtown san jose murder was arrested in las vegas and is now expected to be extradited to the bay area. this is a picture of 24-year-old s shaun moore. accused of chasing down and shooting ramone garcia in august. the crime was captured on surveillance video from a nearby

6:09 pm
>> reporter: along this avenue, just south of the coliseum, a neighborhood with more of its share of crime. just last week a group working here was robbed. >> i heard about it. i regret the theft of the thing, and it's kind of a shame, particularly not only to steal from another person, but to steal from people who are looking for a good house for the first time in their life. it's kind of a double trap. >> reporter: a neighborhood today, though, filled with hope and star power. country stars garth brooks and trisha yearwood building window sills and feeling pretty good about it. >> it's always humbling to be here and see everybody working so hard. >> what i also like is it's not choos choosy. you look out here and won't find a third percentage of race or anything, but you'll find a whole mix. that's the face of love there. >> reporter: 12 affordable units. one just right for maria. she can finally call it her own. >> i'm very happy. that's good for my kids for the future.

san francisco parks are a step closer to having new hours, pardon me. there's a new ordinance aimed at stopping overnight vandalism and passed the board of supervisors committee this afternoon. nbc bay area's joe rosato jr.
6:14 pm
shows us why some believe it's only targeting the homeless. >> reporter: for many the towering pine trees and woodsy terrain of san francisco's golden gate park is a temporary escape from urban living. for dozens of others like brandon, the park is home. >> not bad. it's just basically camping in the woods in the inner city. it's all it is. >> reporter: for the last seven months, he has lived in golden gate park camping among the trees with a group of other homeless youth. >> we're one big family. we chose this lifestyle to live without having to pay rent. >> reporter: but a new proposal by san francisco board of supervisors would for the first time set uniform hours at all city parks from midnight toing a a.m. he and his friends would have to move on. >> everybody would move up. and i think that would be worse for, say, the tourism, you know, people coming in and spending money. >> reporter: it's said the
6:15 pm
legislation isn't aimed at rousing the homeless but preventing vandalism. >> we have a major problem in our park system with middle of night vandalism. metal theft, people coming in and just destroying park property. >> reporter: a board of supervisors committee today took up the proposal. park supervisors described everything from smashed benches and windows to cut down trees. >> this is a beautiful palm tree which someone tried to saw half of it and finally gave up. >> reporter: police point out it's already illegal to sleep or camp in the parks. supporters say uniform hours would make it easier for police to enforce those rules. >> and so it would be an open invitation for a park patrol officer to pull them over and say, what are you up to? >> reporter: longtime park inhabitants believe the legislation is merely aimed at chasing out the homeless. >> i think it's about harassm t harassment. i think it's about being able to write tickets, being able to control the homeless people.
6:16 pm
>> reporter: the board of supervisors committee today passed the motion without recommendation, leaving final details to be worked out before the full board later this month. joe rosato jr., nbc bay area news. a surfer is recovering tonight after he was bitten by a shark in humboldt county. the man was surfs near eureka, north jetty. it's just outside the entrance to humboldt bay. a friend showed us the surfboard with the shark bite marks in it. someone also posted a sign at the beach to warn other surfers. fortunately, there were plenty of people catches waves yesterday morning when the attack happened. no word on what kind of shark bite, what kind of shark bit the surf surfer's thigh. last october at the same beach, another surfer was attacked by a great white shark. he, too, survived. firefighters are monitoring hot spots in yuerba buena island for the three-acre fire.

6:25 pm
6:26 pm
6:27 pm
she's the nation's oldest full-time park ranger and she is not happy about the shutdown. the 92-year-old woman lives right here in the bay area and says the government is wasting her time. and her time is precious. nbc bay area's cheryl hurd is live at richmond at visitors center where the woman works. >> reporter: she does work here at the national visitors center here in richmond and located around the corner from this huge building. this woman is amazing. she has more energy than i do and basically just wants to get back to work. >> my family, but she was -- this is my greatgrandmother. >> reporter: betty reid showed us pictures of her family, it was evident that he is living history. and she says the government shutdown is standing in her way of sharing that history. >> i feel like i am being given
6:28 pm
the privilege of helping to shape a national park and who can resist that? my mother lived to be 101. >> reporter: at 92, she is the nation's oldest full-time park ranger. and she is not happy that she is now furloughed. >> my last decade, and i can't afford to have anybody waste my time and that's what they're doing. >> reporter: she gives tours here at the rosie the riveter world war ii home front national h historical park in richmond. she's working on a project that will honor the women who worked in factories during wartime. they are called rosies. she is known to a lot of people in the bay area including richmond police captain mark gagan. >> i see why she's so successful in not only bringing attention to what was accomplished in the past, but also what her vision for the future is. that's to bring more people here to richmond to celebrate what the rosies accomplished. >> reporter: she wants to finish the project and she says the shutdown is not helping. the rosie the riveter story is
6:29 pm
intertwined in her own life story. >> we're part of the american narrative. >> reporter: her great-grandmother was a slave. a lot of change has occurred over those 70 years. she wants to get back to doing what she does best. >> i had a life going that was weld planned and it was purposeful. and that's been interrupted. >> reporter: i am told that the rosie the riveter project will go on as scheduled next week. despite the shutdown. and soskin says she just wants to bet back at her desk and start working on it. reporting live, nbc bay area news. >> we can understand why. thank you very much. more details on the government shutdown. week two is upon us. more than 350,000 defense department employees have been ordered back to work.
6:30 pm
now, workers at the pentagon and military bases across the country have been deemed essential. as for the bigger picture, couple of dozen house republicans afrgree with the president. democrats say speaker john boehner will not allow a vote. >> the truth of the matter is, there are enough republicans and democratic votes in the house of representatives right now to end the shutdown. >> the president says he's willing to deal after the shutdown ends and the debt ceiling has been hiked. the debt ceiling deadline is ten days away. americans are hoping for a quick solution in all this, but if no deal is struck before we hit that debt ceiling, the u.s. will not default on its debts. >> at least not according to kentucky senator rand paul. in tonight's "reality check" nbc's sam brock investigates the claim that the u.s. can pay its debts. >> that's perhaps a bit of optimism. rand paul is one of several high profile republicans making this argument. don't worry. the u.s. cannot default and will
6:31 pm
not default on its debt because we can prioritize our debt payments above everything else in the government. is that true? we have the money to do it but there's nothing in federal law that says we can do it. it's one of several reasons that paul's statement is completely false. the markets are a little shaky right now. starting to side on fears the u.s. might default on its debt. but don't worry, kentucky senator rand paul says it can't happen. >> we bring in $250 billion in taxes every month. our interest payment is $20 billion. tell me why we would ever default. we have legislation called the full faith and credit act and it tells the president you must pay the interest on the debt. >> reporter: paul is referring to this piece of legislation, hr807, according to the congressional website passed the house in may. but it hasn't even been voted on in the senate yet. meaning it's not law. >> motion is laid upon the table. >> reporter: in fact, there are no laws on the book to this
6:32 pm
effect. >> the notion that the administration can just prioritize certain payments over others, first of all, that's illegal. >> reporter: berkeley law professor, david, spent two years working for the u.s. treasury's office of tax policy. he's seen firsthand how the u.s. paid its bills and said if there were a constitutional authority to prioritize u.s. debt payments the treasury actually isn't set up to do it. >> right now treasury systems are designed to pay bills in the order they come in. there is no programming in order to prioritize payments. that's largely because it's illegal to prioritize payments. >> reporter: as for paul's contention that we have more than enough money to pay our debts, technically that is correct. the latest report from the congressional budget office, an independent and nonpartisan agency that analyzes budgetary issues found the u.s. has upcoming interest payments in the next month of $6 billion and $30 billion. we take in several hundred billion in a typical month, but
6:33 pm
even here, there's little reason to celebrate. >> it's entirely possible. even if all interest payments are paid that just the uncertainty and chaos surrounding the illegality could create a financial crisis worse than the one we're currently recovering from. the key point is that no one knows. it's impossible to predict. >> and another concern that is raised, if we start prioritizing our debt payments, how do all the other services get paid out? social security before medicare. medicare before defense. defense before education. who the heck knows. the only thing that's clear is the u.s. doesn't have the constitutional or logistical backing to guarantee you the american taxpayer that you won't be suffering the consequences of a default. the statement is false. i'm sam brock. that's today's "reality check." a special u.s. marine unit formed after the benghazi attack is on high alert this morning. the crisis response unit was activated following the raid to seize al qaeda operatives over the weekend.
6:34 pm
libya is calling the raid an illegal kidnapping. kerry defended the raid today and said the libyan government was well aware. >> and, of course, we regularly consult with our friends in the region. we consult regularly with the libyan government on a range of security and counterterrorism issues. >> "the new york times" reports that the suspect alibi was flown to new york to face federal charges to various al qaeda plots including the 1998 u.s. embassy bombing in nairobi, ken wra. a boy sneaks on to a plane and ends up in las vegas. now officials are going through security video to figure out how this happened. the 9-year-old boy was able to board a delta flight last thursday without a ticket. he was finally questioned when they landed in nevada. the flight crew became suspicious mid-flight because the boy wasn't on their list of unattended minors. >> all of this since 9/11 has
6:35 pm
been to keep us safer and it has, but still we have gaping holes and this was a perfect example of it. >> stow swrn aways like this case are rare especially with children. the boy's family says he ran away earlier thursday then was able to board that flight. coming up, the $100 bill gets a makeover. the security features that will make this hard to counterfeit. and good evening, i'm jeff ranieri. sunny and warm to start off the week but major changes on the way. that does include some rainfall. we're going to track that for you in the full forecast with your seven day coming up in a few minutes.

6:44 pm

6:47 pm
future cast is as we advance this on wednesday, the bulk of the moisture we anticipate to fall will likely be across the sierra and to the south of us. for most of the bay area, we're going to see the possibility here of some isolated showers in the forecast. again, with the dry storm track, it's going to be too hard to call on exactly who will get those showers at one time. overall throughout wednesday, we'll keep the isolated shower chance in the forecast. note those temperatures again from mid 80s today down to mid 70s by wednesday. we'll have 60s at the bay and coast. thursday, sunny skies return. also into friday. we stay on this frietrend, awes fall air for saturday and sunday and columbus day next monday, clear skies and temperatures in the upper 70s. a speed bump in the midweek forecast but it's par for the course this time of the year. a lot of people are probably looking forward to a new more raindrops. >> okay. thank you very much, jeff. les turn things over to comcast sportsnet newsroom. jim is standing there by live

6:49 pm
this is not safe for children. players had to be separated. benches clearing. later on in the at-bat, martinez lines out to right. ba a's win 6-3 and take the series lead. the a's push the tigers to the brink of elimination. grant balfour's raging confrontation pushed emotions to the boiling point and changed this series. >> he wants to come out here, so i told him, hey, if you got a problem, come on out. so, you know, i'm not going to back down to anyone. not going to let these guys intimidate any. >> i'm not a rookie, to let me intimidate with [ bleep ] like that. i don't take that [ bleep ]. >> balfour likes to win a staredown until someone looks away. that's his thing. it's always been his thing. then bal just asked him what his problem was. i don't think he really liked that even more and then it kind of blew up. >> reporter: in a series dominated by pitching the a's

bats found a way to break through in a big way. >> we stick to, you know, swinging and missing and hitting the ball out of the park. one factor we're going to keep working with. it seems to be our working thing. so we're not going to get away from that. >> reporter: the a's are 11-3 win leading a playoff series 2-1. this team feels it has more than stats in its favor. after talking with the players they tell me they're humble and still yet taking it one game at a time. they felt this victory was big, giving them confidence they could come out tuesday and finish the job off in detroit. at comerica park, kate longworth, nbc bay area news. to football we go. raiders win on sunday night. their quarterback. the backup, matt flynn, has been released by the raiders. a $6.5 million experiment that went terribly wrong. terrelle pryor taking away some of the sting. the raiders traded a 2014 fifth-round pick and conditional selection to seattle for flynn and his career with the raiders is over. >> i don't know exactly what the reason was, you know, why it
6:51 pm
didn't work, but, you know, i -- it just, it didn't work, and terrelle came in and took over the job and he's earned the position that he's in. and so we just felt like it was probably best to go ahead and move on from that. to the 49ers. they crushed the houston texans 34-3 on sunday night football. you saw it here on nbc bay area. and what stood out most to head coach jim harbaugh was the four turnovers forced by san francisco's defense which he compared to a jar of olives. >> well, you open it up and brand new can of olives and turn it over and no olives come out. they're packed in there so darn tight but you get one to come out, just pluck one out of there and they didn't want to come out, they're just flying out of the jar. so hopefully that's the case for us defensively. >> wouldn't it be more like a can of nuts when the snakes jump
